Audrey Lee is going to the Olympics.

A year ago, she could barely do a push up as she recovered from a spine surgery, one that could have paralyzed her. And now? She’s made the United States’ gymnastics team with her best friend, Emma, just like they both dreamed about since they were kids. She’s on top of the world.

The pressure for perfection is higher than ever when horrifying news rips the team apart. Audrey is desperate to advocate for her teammate who has been hurt by the one person they trusted most–but not all the gymnasts are as supportive.

With the team on the verge of collapse, the one bright spot in training is Leo, her new coach’s ridiculously cute son. And while Audrey probably (okay, definitely) shouldn’t date him until after the games, would it really be the end of the world?

Balancing the tenuous relationship between her teammates with unparalleled expectations, Audrey doesn’t need any more distractions. No matter what it takes, she’s not going to let anyone bring them down. But with painful revelations, incredible odds, and the very real possibility of falling at every turn, will Audrey’s determination be enough?

The groan spills out from Jaime as she rolls over on the vault mats, her face twisted in pain after landing flat on her back.

Just knowing what this book is about has me nervous about this section and cringing in sympathy pain. Fun Fact, I grew up doing gymnastics but mostly Ballet, so this is definitely going to be an interesting read. I’m part of the AusYABloggers Blog Tour so check out my review next Saturday!

Seventy-Seven Saturday is a weekly blog meme hosted by the Aussie YA Bloggers where every Saturday we share a snippet of a book from page 77.

    I love that this book touches on the pain factor that sports, specifically gymnastics, does to a body. It’s not something that is shown a lot in books.
